Fortunately for him, NOBLE MISSION will be completely unaware of the burden of expectation that being a brother to the mighty Frankel brings. It's highly unlikely he'll match the exploits of his phenomenal sibling, but his half-brother Bullet Train won this race on his debut and he can follow suit. The 300,000gns colt Frasers Hill, Nordic Quest and Eagle Power are other newcomers to note, along with the Godolphin duo headed by Frankie Dettori's choice Swedish Sailor. Dutch Master could prove best of those with experience ahead of Commitment and Counsel.
